Clash of Clans developer SuperCell has released details of its most-recent financial report, flagging GAAP revenue of $689 million, and earnings before interest or tax revenue of $322 million in 2013.

Gamasutra reports that SuperCell’s figures also include the company’s whopping tax bill, which comes in at $345 million.

SuperCell CEO Ilkka Paananen said of the figures, “It’s no secret that some players spend substantial amounts of money on these games. But I wouldn’t say the vast majority of revenue comes from them.

“These people usually come from an investment banker or lawyer background, and they spend a lot of money on golf courses and so on. I’ve asked them ‘Why do you spend so much money on these games?’ and they say ‘People spend money on golf, I spend money on Clash of Clans.'”

It follows reports that Clash of Clans is raking in $654,000 a day.
